Alternatively, you can pamper yourself with one of these kits because, well, you don't need a reason to do that, other than you definitely deserve it after this rollercoaster of a year. We collected the best picks from every part of your beauty routine so you can end the year with some newness.
Self-care should always be of utmost importance, but even more so during the holidays, which can be a stressful time for many. We like to turn our attention to skin care and wrap our complexions in the richest masks, creams, and oils we can find. This Black Friday, treat yourself or a loved one to skin-care sets filled with all of the products they need for a self-care day — or year.
Glossier The Skincare Edit
Ole Henriksen Power Juice Skincare Set
Glossier offers some of the best beauty gifts around, including The Skincare Edit — which is back for a second year by popular demand. The molded, recyclable paper case features mini sizes of some of the brand's most popular items in miniature sizes, such as the Best of Beauty Award-winning Milky Jelly Cleanser, which dissolves makeup like a dream without stripping with moisturizing pro-vitamin B5 and healing allantoin while pleasantly smelling of soothing rosewater. Pairing perfectly with the face wash is Super Bounce, a deeply hydrating serum that also contains pro-vitamin B5, as well as a plumping two-percent hyaluronic acid complex.
You'll also find the Original and Rose versions of the fan-favorite Balm Dotcom to heal cracked lips, a small jar of the ceramide-spiked Priming Moisturizer Rich to seal in moisture, and an oil-serum Futuredew for an immediate daytime glow in the kit. If that wasn't enough to spark your interest, you'll also receive an adorable pink headband that'll be clutch for keeping hair out of the way while you wash your face. All Glossier sets are 35 percent off starting November 26 through November 30, while everything else on the site is 25 percent off.
If you're searching for an acid-spiked set, the Ole Henriksen Power Juice Skincare Set should fit your needs. Allure staff writer Nicola Dall'asen swears by the lineup's Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner because of its exfoliating and hyperpigmentation-diminishing abilities, which a potent blend of glycolic and lactic acids (also known as alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs) and witch hazel is largely responsible for.
We can't forget about the included Phat Glow Facial either, which deploys gentle polyhydroxy acids (also known as PHAs) to resurface and even skin tone while you watch Chrismas movies on Netflix. Because PHAs have a smaller molecule size and don't penetrate as far as AHAs, they're an ideal choice for sensitive skin. A full-size C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème (which alone costs $46) drenches skin with three sources of vitamin C to illuminate your complexion. Everything at Ole Henriksen is 30 percent off between November 24 and December 1.
Elemis Pro-Collagen Trio
Murad Glow Forward Skincare Set
For those unfamiliar with Elemis, the brand's handy Pro-Collagen Trio is the perfect introduction because it contains three classics: the makeup-dissolving Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, wrinkle-smoothing Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, and firming Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment. All three products are infused with hydrating padina pavonica (a type of Mediterranean seaweed) and protein-rich, softening blue flower linseed to leave skin looking radiant with continuous use. From now until November 28, snag this deal and many others at ultabeauty.com/blackfriday (keep checking back for new additions) for up to 50 percent off. No code is needed, and all offers are valid while supplies last.
If you were to buy the four full-sized items in Murad's Glow Forward Set separately, your cart would add up to $259. This Black Friday (more specifically November 23 to 39), you can cop it for just $113. Simply enter code BF2020 at checkout to redeem your savings. Inside, you'll discover a complete routine that starts with a gel-to-oil Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser spiked with prebiotic powder that promotes the good bacteria found in your skin's microbiome to minimize irritation and sensitivity (in the form of acne, rosacea, and more).
The set runs all the way down to the City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50, a mineral sunscreen formulated with a soft, luminous peach tint to color-correct dark circles. In between, the Vita-C Glycolic Brightening Serum protects skin against the wrath of free radicals and provides gentle exfoliation so the vitamin C sinks in deeper. Lastly, the Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture's hyaluronic acid and coconut extract amp up and maintain hydration levels all day long.
While we're still very much dealing with a full-blown pandemic, there's no time like the holidays to get a little dolled up — even if all of your parties and gift unwrappings are taking place over Zoom. Add some glow to your cooped-up complexion with an illuminating primer or high-sheen lip gloss and swipe on some mascara to make you more look awake and less like you downed an entire bottle of wine last night.
Fenty Beauty Holo'Daze Edition Mini Gloss Bomb Collection
Kosas The Swipe & Go Set
Keep your lips extra glossy and hydrated, thanks to conditioning shea butter, with Fenty Beauty's Holo'Daze Edition Mini Gloss Bomb Collection. The über-cute set includes four subtle, shimmery shades of the Readers' Choice Award winner: Cake Shake (bronze), Baby Brut (gold), Taffy Tease (coral), and ruby milk (deep plum) to suit your every mood. No wonder beauty devotees consider this set a gifting staple.
For a short n' sweet morning makeup routine, the Kosas Swipe & Go Set has you covered. A mini-size, castor-oil-infused tube of The Big Clean Mascara boosts lashes for an instant extension-like look without an appointment. The Weightless Lipstick in Vegas (a beige-tinted nude) and Wet Lip Oil Gloss in Jellyfish (clear), on the other hand, smooth and plump dry lips for hours of comfort with a moisturizing trio of mango seed butter, hyaluronic acid, and peptides.
Pat McGrath Labs Rose Decadence Eye Trio
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Blush & Glow Complexion Kit
It wouldn't be a memorable Black Friday without an appearance from Mother herself. The Rose Decadence Eye Trio nails the ethereal, soft glam aesthetic for all of your indoor, golden-hour Instagram shoots. Paint your eyes with mesmerizing pinks, stunning corals, metallic golds, and blazing fuchsias with the Mthrshp: Rose Decadence Eye Shadow Palette; achieve bold, fluttery lashes with the Dark Star Mascara; and perfect a sharp cat eye with the long-wearing Perma Precision Liquid Eyeliner. It can be all yours for 25 percent off (the discount for orders under $150) or 30 percent off if you spend $150 or more.
Just because we're indoors all the time doesn't mean we have to forgo a glowy complexion. Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte's Magic Blush & Glow Complexion Kit makes it super simple to create a luminescent base with a handy trio of products. The Brightening Youth Glow Primer's pearlescent pigments impart a blurring effect on skin while a burst of algae extract and vitamin B3hydrates skin. The Magic Foundation evens out skin tone and provides ample coverage but manages to feel nearly weightless, while the two-toned Cheek to Chic Blush warms up complexions with a touch of pink or reddy-brown.
Tons of Charlotte Tilbury gift sets are on sale for 30 percent all of Black Friday, and the daily deals are discounted as much as 50 percent off.
Over the past year, we've become self-taught hairstylists, colorists, and blowout masters. Continue honing in your skills with these all-encompassing sets filled to the brim with nourishing masks and scalp treatments — or dry shampoo for days when you simply can't be bothered.
Briogeo Scalp Therapy Essentials Kit
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo Holiday Set
Proper hair care starts with the scalp, which can suffer from dryness, itchiness, inflammation, and even psoriasis. The Briogeo Scalp Therapy Essentials Kit is focused around charcoal, known for its deep-cleansing and oil-absorbing properties, and complements all hair types. The Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo removes buildup and flakiness, while the Scalp Revival Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner restores hydration and the Best of Beauty Award-winning Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment gives itchiness the boot.
At every step of the way, the Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager dives deep into your roots and plunges each treatment into your scalp more satisfyingly than what your fingertips alone can do. Shower therapy, ever heard of it?
What's better than a full-sized bottle of dry shampoo? A travel-sized bottle to stash in your bag for on-the-go freshening up. Thankfully, Living Proof has us covered with its Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo Holiday Set. Spritz onto oily areas, wait for 30 seconds for the powders to activate and soak up excess oil and sweat, and then run your fingers or a brush through your hair to remove any residue. Odor neutralizers and time-released fragrances ensure your hair stays smelling fresh. In other words, the full shampoo-conditioner shebang can wait another day.
R+Co Nourish & Restore Set
Bread Beauty Supply Kit 1 – Wash
Valued at $106, the Dermstore-exclusive R+Co Nourish & Restore Set aims to hydrate, smooth, and strengthen hair with three different products. The best news is it can be all yours for just $53 between November 24 and 30 as long as you pop in promo code SHARETHELOVE at checkout. The Television Perfect Hair Shampoo, Television Perfect Hair Conditioner, and Television Perfect Hair Masque work together in harmony to boost both body and shine of dull hair while quenching parchedness with glycerin, panthenol, snow mushroom, and murumuru butter.
Created with 4C textures in mind, Bread Beauty Supply Kit 1 – Wash is on a mission to make wash day a breeze by painlessly detangling and defining curls. Hair Wash is a gentle, milky co-wash that imparts serious moisture with its blend of argan oil and aloe vera and scalp-soothing lemon tree oil. Once you're done shampooing, follow up with the marshmallow-scented Hair Mask brimming with Australian Kakadu plum (which is a good source of vitamin C) and starflower oil to soften hair and prep it for styling.
Saturate hair with the silicone-free, nongreasy Hair Oil to give it some slip and extra moisture where you need it most. If you need to tie up your hair throughout the day, protect it from creasing and tugging with the 100 percent satin scrunchie, Bread-Puff.
These discounted sets are just a taste of what the best shopping week of the year has to offer. Check out the rest of our extensive Black Friday and Cyber Monday coverage to score even more beauty deals.
